    I've been fasting from you for more than a while

    So the sight of you on this day was like a mirage

    You appearered to be a vision of the heaven to come

    But before I could get fully suckered into the illusion

    My weary soul cried out for my mind to stop playing tricks

    To take off the rosy glasses & take a good look at the real you

    And recall what made me have to quit you all together cold turkey

    Cause once upon a time I was truly addicted to you like pure heroin

    I would do anything for just one more fix, one more second with you

    Even at the price of losing my soul completely without any remorse

    But then reality came crashing in, in the form of your fist to my face

    I'd like to say I left immediately but it took a few trips to the hospital

    For me to see that you were killing me slowly and i don't mean softly

    But that seem like a lifetime ago sinced I moved on from that insanity

    So catching a glimpse of you today was a complete jolt to the senses

    But after the inital shock I am able to continue my soul's extraction

    For no matter how good it used to be I still see my blood upon your fist

    And I will never subject my body and soul to that madness ever again

    For I am so much stronger, wiser and better than the me of yesterday

    So thanks for the trip down memory lane but keep on keeping on

    For I believe I'll continue my fast of you till hell has become icy

    Feelings for someone are hard to shake, those good times were so good, they sometimes overshadow the bad. However, good times can never erase abuse, or keep it from paying a return visit. Well posed poetess.

    Nothing wrong with...

    looking back, sometimes its the glimpses of our past that keep us moving forward.


    Be Blessed!
